MI will like to tinker with their line-up after their last clash against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) on Thursday. Sri Lanka’s two vital players, Lasith Malinga and Asela Gunaratne, will be available for selection for their second game. Malinga, being an essential cog in Rohit’s camp, will walk straight into the side after they failed to defend a competitive score versus RPS. He may swap places with New Zealand’s Tim Southee, who himself is a clever customer in his prime job. Gunaratne, after his blitz in South Africa and Australia, was picked by MI in the IPL auction. He can be a valuable addition to their XI.
KKR are a strong unit in terms of their bowling. Gambhir also rotates his bowlers and asks them to go for the kill. Chawla, Kuldeep, Shakib and Yusuf give enough blanket to Gambhir, who likes attacking with his tweakers. Nonetheless, Sunil Narine may face the brunt with Shakib’s arrival. In the pace battery, Woakes and Boult will trouble the batsmen with their variations.
